Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We make merchandise for all sorts of people around the world in the "electronic dance music" scene. We have our own small line of merchandise, but we also collaborate with many people in the world of dance music.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
We have a brand new collaboration and we need help with designs. Our new client is THE MUSIC NINJA. It's a dance music blog (see google). We want to design a new tee shirt logo for them. We want to do something very nice so that people visiting our website from all over the world will appreciate the new tee shirt design. It needs to be interesting and attractive enough that people who do not know what THE MUSIC NINJA is will still like the design.
Currently, they have an image available to view on their site. They want to keep the theme of having a ninja along with a musical theme, but they are open to all sorts of new, cool, cutting edge design ideas. They ask that their business name (The Music Ninja) also appears in the tee shirt design. I don't want to give too much instruction because we'd like to let designers pursue their creative ideas. I told The Music Ninja that I'd love to have a tee shirt design one day that even incorporates authentic Japanese lettering. They like the idea as well, but only if it works with the actual design goals of the client. I was thinking maybe "Music Is A Gift" in Japanese letters somewhere. Only if it looks good - this isn't a prerequisite though. So, to summarize, they want some sort of ninja character along with the words "The Music Ninja". The Japanese lettering isn't mandatory but just a light suggestion if it looks good.
This design will be hopefully used for men's and women's tee shirts as well as maybe trucker hats. It has to be cool enough so that people who don't know what the MUSIC NINJA blog is will still be interested in buying the tee shirt.
